Tom Daley Talks 'Crazy' Attention On His Relationship With Dustin Lance Black (VIDEO)

Tom Daley stepped out this week for his first public appearance with his boyfriend, Dustin Lance Black, and spoke about the “crazy” attention their relationship has been receiving.

The Olympic diver came out in December last year, posting a YouTube video where he revealed he had been dating a man since the summer, later revealed to be Oscar-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black.

The pair made their first public appearance together at the Battersea Power Station on Wednesday wearing - it has to be said - remarkably similar outfits. We can only presume there was a two-for-one on leather jackets or something.

Speaking to journalists on the red carpet, Tom said that he can feel overwhelmed by the attention their relationship has received, but is happy to have the support of the public, explaining: “It’s been crazy since the whole shebang. But it has been fun and everyone’s been really supportive - so it’s all good really.”

Since posting his coming out video, Tom has spoken in various interviews about his relationship, including with TV presenter Jonathan Ross, who he told: “It really was love at first sight, I’d never felt like anything like it before.

“He makes me feel safe and happy, right now I couldn’t be happier.”

Luckily for Tom, it sounds like his new man is just as besotted with him, as he told The Sun, following their first red carpet appearance together as a couple: “He’s the best. I’m very proud. Everything Tom has said about being in love I feel and echo probably more. I’m very happy.”

Tom is currently appearing in ‘Tom Daley Goes Global’ on ITV2, which sees him backpacking around the world with his best friend Sophie (yes, the same one who uploaded the infamous photo of Tom's bum to Instagram...)

It’s been previously reported that ITV bosses are so impressed with Tom’s appearance on the show, they’re lining him up to appear in the jungle on the next series of ‘I’m A Celebrity’.
